Wi-Flight requires directional outdoor high-power (500mW) Wi-Fi access points to properly upload data automatically from aircraft up to 300 feet away.  Multiple access points can be used to cover larger ramps on different frequencies for maximum throughput.  Access points come pre-configured and require no outdoor power (uses power over ethernet).  These specialty access points are extremely reliable and are available for only $149 each.

The Wi-Flight Upload Accelerator is a modified network storage device that acts as a high-speed local buffer for Wi-Fi uploads at up to 54mbps from aircraft on the ramp.  Offloads hundreds of megabytes of data from aircraft in mere minutes (not hours).  Normally priced at $495 we are currently offering a $195 promotion on this must-have product for even the smallest operators.
